Morning Rocks!

Gulf Study

Experimented with wave patterns, light, and purple shadows early this morning.  Set up the easel and pushed paint around, letting myself react to what was in front of me.  Pure joy.

This is a moving study.  Light and shadows changed fast.  Locked the foreground shadow in and let it stay.  Gulf formed light greenish-yellow swells in a steady pattern breaking on the rocks.  Seascape painting is memory painting.  Look, watch, wait... remember... and paint.
